Hi! As of current, I am vegetarian because my parents have said they will not allow me to become vegan until I move out. This will not be possible until a few years down the line, as I am 15, but I'm determined to see if I can get them to reconsider before then.
My breakfasts, lunches, and snacks are vegan, as I make them myself; the only issue currently is dinner.
First of all, if my parents are not cooking, they tend to buy convenience food from a supermarket, usually M&S or Sainsbury's (they're British supermarkets). Things like sandwiches, wraps, salads, and cook chill meals. With the exception of a select few items which aren't always even in stock, everything has dairy, eggs, and/or honey in it. Bean wraps, falafel wraps, pasta bakes, curries, etc. Whenever I go shopping with them to choose something to eat, I can't really find anything vegan. If any of you from the UK know of any pre-prepared food they sell that's vegan, that'd be great.
And second of all, they are unwilling to cook vegan, which I suspect is down to the fact they don't know how. They don't really mind cooking vegetarian, just not vegan. And honestly I'm not sure how to cook vegan either, which is why I'd really appreciate some advice from you guys, although I am aware it's not difficult. Occasionally we eat dinner at my grandmother's house too, who can cook vegetarian dishes but I'm not sure if she knows about vegan ones. Any simple dishes I might be able to suggest?
If I can show them it isn't hard to find vegan food, that's at least a step in the right direction, even if they don't change their minds overnight.
Oh and I know this is a bit unrelated, but what do you think of these B12 supplements? Do you happen to know if these are vegan, and which you think I should go for? I do currently take a vegetarian-friendly multivitamin that includes B12, but it contains D3 which is of course not vegan.
And I was thinking of taking Omega 3 supplements for EPA/DHA, these any good? I can't find any that are advertised as containing EPA/DHA that are vegan, or even vegetarian.
